Spark Plugs eh?
Just a quick question:
OEM plugs are just fine for the non-s/c 3.4L. What about the supercharged one?
Yesterday my wife and I were driving on I-25 from Denver to Colo Spgs, and going up Monument Hill, it just woudn't accelerate! Punching the pedal down (Gas, not brake) and it downshifted, we heard a popping/pinging sound combined with some hesitation, and then it stumbled big time then the infamous "Check the engine you idiot! light" started flashing, then it stayed on until I pulled over and shut it down.
I talked to Will Corder (thanks for the help) and we figured I'd check the plugs. They're a Denso K16...something or other. The body of the plugs were so brown I think from just aging, I couldn't read much more. The plugs tips were kinda chared, greyish, dry, no oil or anything. Not sure what it did, but it sure didn't like accelerating!
I'm running 91octane too, so I don't understand it! My wife thinks we should trade the TRD Supercharger in for a winch and a bumper, but I kinda like the power that the S/C gives. Not quite sure as to what caused it, everything else checks out just fine.
Any input would be appreciated, and if you have more than .02 worth, I'll take it too!
